Re: “A lack of parking is causing problems for Boulevard residents and those nearby

Cid95 - First of all, what's wrong with wanting front and back yards? There are urban areas in which, if that's not your bag, you can find what you're looking for. Not every place has to be like that. As for increasing population density, I'd be careful about wishing for that too greatly. Violent crime and population density are tightly tied, in a negative fashion.

http://newsinfo.iu.edu/news/page/normal/13…

"The study found higher rates of all types of violent crime in areas of high-density residential land use, even after controlling for overall population. The correlation was more pronounced in disadvantaged areas but held true in other areas as well.

"There seems to be something about (high-density residential) units that is associated with all types of serious violent crime, even controlling for the other factors in the model," the authors write. "Apparently, high-density housing units promote serious violent crime.""

Personally, I'd rather live in a safer area with more automotive traffic than a crime-ridden area with more access to public transportation.

Re: “Peninsula parking pressure points proliferate

If you can't go more than 5 mph, you should get out of the way of a car. It's just obnoxious.

Re: “There is still hope for new CofC leader Glenn McConnell

Of course there is hope. Only ignorant people think reenacting is equivalent to racism. He has done nothing anti LGBT by the way. I'm a gay student at CofC, and have not ever heard or read any homophobic comments from him. I expect this comment to get a bunch of thumbs down by people who hate on him. But I honestly think he is qualified for the job. Give the man a shot.

Re: “Local activist headed to Ferguson

"violence against unarmed young African Americans"

This is indeed an important cause since nearly half of US murder victims are black, though they comprise only 13% of the US population. Of course, most of those murdering them are black also so I'm not sure what this trip will accomplish? But, I wish him well in what I am sure is a rational, logical and non-ideologically motivated trip.

Re: “Scott Shor of Edmund's Oast reacts to Best New Restaurant nom from Bon Appetit

And the further fetishization and crass marketing of the new "foodie" phenomenon becomes even more interesting as it just takes on the dimension of class warfare and hints of Nero fiddling.
Pass me the non-GMO heirloom smoked popcorn sprayed with truffle oil and layered with shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano while I enjoy the debate. Someone ask the beer sommelier for the correct pairing.

"he needs help with personal expenses once he gets there."
"He must have a great job that allows for flexible time off."
I'm guessing he doesn't have a real job.

Re: “Local activist headed to Ferguson

Before we rush to judgment, we definitely need to wait until some type of information is presented that can allow me to justify not giving a shit about systemic police brutality of minorities.

Re: “College of Charleston unveils new school logo featuring Randolph Hall under oaks

underwhelming.
Gil is an icon of the design world, but this just doesn't seem to rise to the level of his
previous work. I can only assume the client's input was a detrimental influence.

Re: “New interactive map shows effects of sea level rise on Charleston

".... but I can smell bullshit when it comes to the money."

yeah pull Al Gore's finger.
There is a lot of money in being chicken little.

Al Gore won an Academy Award for his 2006 climate documentary An Inconvenient Truth.
Gore then went on to found the cable news network Current TV.
Despite their low ratings, in December 2012 Current TV was purchased by Al Jazeera for $500 million.
Gore's 20% stake in Current TV earned him $100 million in pre-tax profits.
Gore is a board member of Apple Inc, and owns $35 million worth of Apple shares.
He is also the chairman of Generation Investment Management which has $7 billion in assets.

net worth:$300 million

Paul, your cartoon contribution does nothing to help and only seems to deceive.
To what end?

"He might want to wait until the whole story comes out on Michael Brown."

Absolutely right!

Maybe Mr Fish could make better use of his time by going to Chicago and documenting the ongoing tragedy and loss of life there.

Re: “CofC grads start solar-powered golf cart taxi service on Folly

"Five hours should give them a full charge". The article says nothing about the size of either the batteries, the solar array, or the motors.
Without that data there is no way to know the charge time, how long the batteries will last on a charge, or how much the solar cells charge them.
